The gift idea started out as a project for myself actually. I wanted to make a case for my sunglasses because they always end up getting scratched in my purse. Then a little phrase popped into my head and I knew it would be a darling teacher gift.
"Thank you for helping me 'See', just how fun learning can be". I wanted the case to be slightly retro looking and all around cute. I made one case for my daughters teacher and loved it so much that I made one for myself too.
I chose my fabric, a light whitish color for the outside and a blue with white polka dots for the inside.
To assemble the bag I used this simple to follow tutorial from Pink Polka Dot Creations. I got the sunglasses on sale so that helped cut the cost down and I had all the other materials for the bag already so it turned out to be a pretty cost effective gift as well.
LOVE the cute freezer paper sunglasses image, and velveteen fabric paint is a great way to add some flair! Thanks Lisa!
Tune in tomorrow for another great gift idea!
